Labatt Bleue is a must have in terms of sponsor. Makes so much sense.
The new realignment being accepted by the NHLPA, it looks like we're ****ed. It looks much harder to change the divisions in case of relocation from west to east.
Remember that the NHLPA asked the NHL what would happen if the Coyotes had to move to Quebec City. They must have received an acceptable answer if they accepted the proposal. I'm sure the NHL has a contingency plan in case the team has to move. Don't read to much into it. If you want to read into something, read into the "we will revaluate after the 2014-15 season" thing. Our arena is set to open in Septembre of 2015. Coincidence? I think not

Which is pretty funny considering RDS's efforts to sell Seattle as a hockey market.
He also explained how Key Arena was a great place that can hold 15 000 fans and only needed a new scoreboard to be NHL ready.
Maybe it can hold 15,000 fans, but how many unobstucted seats are there? 10,000? They will take a financial bath in that arena unless people are willing to pay reasonable prices for partially obstructed or fully obstructed seats.
